11:18 am
into tomorrow. we have different computers that show us the amounts of rain that we might get along with the timing. this one gives a generalized one-inch-plus. some places with two inches plus. we have some computer models that suggest much more rain than that. not over a widespread area but locally, a focused area. as we go through the day today and those new hours start to develop, we'll getting a better idea where that flood threat is going to be. this is not a typo. the high temperature in the lehigh valley 69. the high temperature in parts of delaware and south jersey 89. 20 degree temperature contrast as the showers and storms develop, some of them becoming heavy. seven-day forecast looks like just about everybody is cool tomorrow. 67 degrees, only 70 on

11:48 am
weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> and it's a good thing they're not playing baseball tonight because it would certainly be threatened by the weather. we've got a first alert weather day. that goes actually into tomorrow. we've got showers and storms some of them likely heavy causing localized flooding. there's a shot from the poconos. that's one of the areas that's not in the flash flood watch. it's 70 degrees in philadelphia now with a northeast wind at 13 miles an hour. 15 degrees colder than this time yesterday. we hit 92 degrees yesterday. look at this contrast. allentown, 61. mt. holly, 64. dover is 84. not a typo. that's real. this is quite a front across the area. let's show it to you. here we go. even close up 62 in horsham and trenton. 78 in wilmington, delaware. farther to the north, of course it's colder.
11:49 am
61 in allentown. 59 in shenandoah. and then as you head to the south, 84 degrees in dover. 81 in millville. 80 in lipline. that's almost crazy. this is the area of storms that developed overnight, came through this morning, and now not much left. we're in a lull but with that heating of the day, those showers and storms should be redeveloping and here is what happens though. the front is extended east to west and the storms which tend to form right near that front and form in a west to east way. but the problem is they will move from west to east so the same areas have the potential to get hit over and over. it's called training. and that's what we're going to be looking for this afternoon. eventually some of that activity will spread down to the south,
11:50 am
but there's more coming up tonight and into tomorrow and some areas are definitely going to get pounded here. now, i showed you one computer model a little while ago. here is another one that's showing the heaviest of the rain ending up south of philadelphia but, again, we're looking at what's the maximum number? it's way over an inch. generally over two inches. in this case there's three inches for cape may. here is another model. this one is the most extreme of all. shows a tremendous contrast to the amount of rain and this area in red here that would be potentially over five inches of rain. so what we're talking about is the potential for what can happen with this. there's over three in dover, close to two inches in philadelphia, but practically nothing in allentown. and even practically nothing in atlantic city. look at this difference. that's the kind of differences
11:51 am
that can show up in patterns like this. so it's something we're going to have to watch and you're going to need to watch, too, because it can get serious when you get that amount of rain in a short amount of time. now, showers and thunderstorms, some of them heavy, and, yeah that is the temperature contrast. 69 in lehigh valley to 89 in parts of delaware. not that i'm not sure. that's what's going to happen. i am sure that there's going to be a tremendous temperature contrast today. you just saw it. well, tomorrow it's likely to be cool just about everywhere highs only in the 60s with periods of rain and then we have a chance of showers even each day for the rest of the week. so we're in a wetter pattern, that's for sure. this drought pattern gets broken up a little bit and then by the weekend we're back up into the 80s.

11:56 am
>> i'm never sure with you. you're such a big baseball guy. >> i'm throwing out the first pitch. >> are you ready? >> it's just an incredible honor. >> don't get booed. you have to throw a strike. >> yeah. then it's on youtube all over the world if i screw up. okay. >> so you got to be ready. >> that's right. so let's look at the radar. there's not much on there right now and it's going to be increasing during the afternoon. every computer model in the world shows us that. the showers and thunderstorms become heavier, but the temperature contrast doesn't change. it's 20 degree contrast across the area. so 69 to 89. and then tomorrow everybody is on the cool side and we have chances of showers each day for the rest of the week. that flash flood watch goes until midnight tonight, and there may very well be warnings issued later today and into this evening and we'll shallbe watching
11:57 am
